Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think I'm cut out to do the job, since this is not my terrain of expertise. But I'll offer to proof-read and put some criticism or put questionmarks on spots I don't understand. And I would condone it, too, if we put signatures underneath it. You've my name.

I'll start of First of: what do we want to address? On top of my head

  • The fact that the rioting is enlarged
  • The unemployment number which is constantly quoted falsely or out of context.
  • That under Jospin unenmployment decreased
  • That protectionism in France is not an issue compared to the UK or USA

I'm thinking specifically now of frontpaged diaries mostly from Jerome and afew. I'm sure there's a lot more to it.

But Agnes... what happened to your underground...?

You mean why am I out in the bush again, instead of peacefully lurking as I used to until yesterday ?  
Dunno, perhaps a misguided feeling that I can contribute something over there.
I guess there will be a lot of stop and goes -I mean days when you will see nothing of me, and days when I will write- before I manage to find the right level of attendance.
I cannot afford the luxury of spending my office hours on ET, we're in France, remember ... :)) and outside the office, real life prevails, so I am a bit at a loss.

Your contributions are always worth it, so in that regard I'm the more happier to see you already back to the wheel.

As to the stop and goes approach - that's how I manage ET.
